storm-1_1For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you. “Fear not, I am the One who helps you.” ( Isaiah 41:13)

We all face storms and battles of every kind in this life.  We have not reached heaven yet so we must stand in faith and trust that God is here with us through each trial we face.  Whether it be a serious illness, a financial struggle, a marriage or relationship heartache, endless addiction struggles or you just feel alone and without a future – the truth is that your problems have no power to destroy you when you are in Christ.   You do not have to worry about your impossible situation when you surrender it to the God of limitless possibilities.  He has the plan for you even though you can’t see it now.  In his perfect timing, you will know he was with you.

This holiday time of year can bring sadness to those who are struggling with pain and loneliness.  Many just give up because they have believed the enemy’s lie.  They assume that their situation is never going to end or be resolved.  They feel hopeless and helpless and with nowhere to turn.

The truth is that Christ is just a prayer away.  He has the power to help you get through your pain.  And because he has complete authority over all things, he can turn your problems around to be used instead for your good.

Never let the silence of your situation make you think that God doesn’t care.  His love for you endures throughout eternity.  Keep your focus on him.  Surrender your brokenness and your fears to the One who can calm you with just a word and restore you to wholeness.  You can’t fall too far from the power of his grace. Let Jesus show you what real love is.   You don’t have to look away – he is with you right now!

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
